I went on a bit of a thrifting binge on Friday (it's feast or famine, I swear!) and found this pretty dress in the process. It has such a lovely Prada-like print that I couldn't leave it all by its lonesome on the rack. I also think it might be the first babydoll dress I've owned since, like, the '90s.

Plaguing me weeks: I must have an awesome pair of high-heeled loafers. How perfect would they be with this dress?

PS I'd like to thank fellow DC blogger, Miranda, for the award!

A pair of high heeled loafers would be perfect with pretty much anything! Well maybe not anything but you've definitely put the idea in my head...

Amazing dress. I love when the thrift store is good to me. I too am looking for the perfect pair of high heeled oxfords. I am not a fan of the flat oxfords as I don't think they would move smoothly into my wardrobe but I am a fan of the high heeled version. I'll let you know if I find a good pair.

Sal said...

Those shoes were MADE to be worn with that dress!

high heeled loafers would be divine! I've been coveting a certain pair of marc jacobs recently *sigh* one can dream. but those shoes are pretty awesome too!

The Frocker said...

Ooh, pretty! I like that your shoes compliment your dress perfectly without being overly matchy-matchy. Do you thrift shop mostly in DC? I haven't ventured to any shops in DC, but I did go to the Goodwill in Bethesda/Rockville(??) off of Randolph Road, and I'm going to try the Value Village or something off of Viers Mill Rd and Randolph, if you know where I'm talking about. :D

I love this dress. And the shoes. And how they exactly match. Otherwise it would be too much color, but since they are clearly soulmates, it is perfect. As the world should be ;)
